Who got rich from Bitcoin?
And You Can Become The Next Millionaire…
Goldman Sachs last month raised the prospect of people investing in cryptocurrencies like bitcoin. But big banks aren't the only financial institutions exploring ways to invest in digital currencies. Just this week, Janus Henderson said it would incorporate cryptocurrency investments into a new tech and venture capital fund, according to CNBC. Created as a vehicle for investing in startups, it could provide investment opportunities to people who want to speculate on bitcoin, the popular cryptocurrency. The investment firm also said it intends to invest in start-ups selling bitcoin, according to reports. As it stands, most digital currencies are traded on online exchanges. Other firms have already gotten into the digital currency investment game. Barry Silbert, the founder of Bitcoin Investment Trust, launched his first investment vehicle last fall. Silbert launched the early-stage startup in March, crowdfunding a first-round investment of $13 million in six companies. Bitcoin's rapid rise since 2013 has inspired wistful writing about the future of money and led many to wonder what it would take to reignite America's "revolutionary new money." But Bitcoin is hardly the only cryptocurrency upstart. Two newer efforts called Ethereum and Bitcoin cash are taking the movement to a different level, offering more powerful ways to hold or even build distributed computing networks. Bitcoin is currently trading at $3,808.99, according to CoinMarketCap. Janus Henderson's fund aims to build a minimum of $200 million and it could launch by mid-2018.
Danny Markel is a developer, consultant and founder of Get-ItMoney.com "Anyone could be the next PayPal," Yahoo! bought Yahoo Japan for $11 billion. There was a lot of respect placed on the value of the Japanese payment system compared to U.S. payment systems and hence, Yahoo! was not going to jettison Yahoo Japan too quickly. Currently, the investment opportunities are growing rapidly, and if you are considering digital currency investment investments, it is wise to read up on what is happening right now. Downloading Bitcoin Digital currency technology can be defined as a means by which the exchange, movement and storage of money can be done independent of central banks. In recent years it has caught the imagination of many. However, for security, digital currency transactions are difficult to trace. It is therefore surprising that people continue to use it for transactions that are based on traditional currency transactions. Only 5 percent of transactions are safe and secure, so go for the low risk and high return alternative of physical cash in paper. At the end of October, the minimum required purchase for Bitcoins was set at $200, and given that the settlement is scheduled to take place in 2045 at the same date, it is reasonable to predict that the peak level for Bitcoin will be $1,000 in just 10 years. Virtual currency investing So, what is the best way to invest in Bitcoin? Well, there are three main options: ● Short-term capital gains buy-in (Buy-in) ● Long-term capital gains buy-in (Buy-in) ● Short-term investment (Exchange) Keep in mind, Bitcoin investment is not the same as buying and using the currency. The difference is Bitcoin is controlled by the investment entity. So, if you are holding the currency, it makes it possible to purchase fractional shares of the currency to ensure that your shares can be quickly sold at the highest value at a future date. Right now, the Bitcoin market is stable enough to allow for relatively low-risk investment. One way to choose to acquire shares in Bitcoin is to build a virtual currency portfolio that will last at least five years, and the Bitcoin position can be continually converted into physical cash. Bitcoin has attracted several companies to the U.S. financial industry through the proposal of initial coin offerings (ICOs), which allows developers, such as myself, to create an investment vehicle. Also called an ICO, it is a partial stock offering in which a license for trading cryptocurrency is granted to a developer. The developer usually gets approximately 100 percent of the company’s total pre-investment value (up to $200 million), thereby allowing for large investment amounts. Companies that float their shares in Ethereum or other platforms are receiving public equity, which ensures that they are treating the demand for money-holding cryptocurrency, as owners of a financial instrument. There is no additional fee for a holder to exchange these shares for Bitcoin. How would this be possible? Well, because bitcoins are not commonly exchanged, the price is tightly correlated with the investment value of a share. However, it is only the time frame until you convert it back into the number of dollars, that differs. The switch can be postponed. So it is best to hang on to shares in cryptocurrency as long as it can be successfully converted into dollars to avoid the fee. Even though banks have voiced concerns about cryptocurrency investments, the application of decentralization will open up new lines of application and provide new capital avenues for investment. A fully-developed global Bitcoin exchange is expected to be in operation within the next two years. These developments will help in creating a more liquid platform in which investments in virtual currency can be viewed. These developments will certainly advance the use of digital currency, and provide opportunities for entrepreneurs looking to create a viable investment product.
